Starting again - Wolf's Pit Fell Race

Not training through the winter means I have to put up with the first few races of the year being a bit disappointing. I try to temper this disappointment and ready myself to be slower than the people I normally compete against. But it's hard.

In the future, I can see myself coming back from a winter off training and saying "I'm so far behind, I can't see how I can get back to where I was".

At Wolf's Pit fell race today. I went off a bit fast, so lost a few places in the second half of the race. However, I now see where I need to be, and I have the experience of past years to help me get there. The main question is "do I have the desire to put the training in?" The answer is a definite "Yes".

Mrs Noel continued where she left off last year, taking over three minutes of her previous time at this race.
